I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened.

The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta.

The boarding process wasn’t bad at all. I just wish everything else was just as pleasant. The agent at the counter act like she’s unhappy with her job. The flight attendants was annoyed because I asked for water. Then they had those bright lights on mostly the whole flight.

I booked my flight through a third party, which was fine. I chose my seat of 21J. After picking my seat I asked my husband what seat was he in. So he called Hawaiian Airlines and gave them my seat number and she told him once he got to the airport to have see if they sit him next to me. I get to the airport print my boarding pass I have no seat assignment. Asked the lady at the counter for seat assignment and we’re sitting in the very last seat. It was crammed uncomfortable because it was hot. Nothing to watch because they want to charge for everything. I’m hoping this is my last time flying with Hawaiian Airlines.

Crew was really nice and accommodating, very comfortable seats but had to pay $80 for them.

Food would have been better if they had nut-free options since I'm allergic. Other airlines give you nut free treats because of this reason. Entertainment could have been better - options for TV shows was limited - should have some HBO shows or newer sitcoms. Movie selection could have been better as well.

Great that Hawaiian serves a meal and complimentary glass of wine. On-board service always very good.

Airline did not automatically assign my TSA pre-check, which it has on file and is supposed to do. Even after I entered it when I checked in, the system did not take it and did not warn me it hadn’t. Could not select seat when purchased ticket. Plane had no power outlet for laptop. Movies cost a fee, as did blanket.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
